Religious and spiritual poem, like an arrow to heaven, the short work by Peter Menkin is read by the poet the Third Week of Easter, 2008. Written more than five years ago, the poem speaks of contemplation, how one must wait on grace, and even this paradoxical statement--pursuit of God.
These words appear in the poem:
Pursuit of God, some call this.
waiting on the Lord.
Note that the text appears on Peter Menkin's personal website where other Christian poetry may be found (some call it "God poetry," others "Faith Poetry," and a few "Spiritual poetry"). "Hello World" is at http:www.petermenkin.com .
The poet's work appears in his Parish newsletter from time to time (Church of Our Saviour, Mill Valley, California--Episcopal), and sometimes an audio reading on its website. That is why Peter Menkin is called "a Parish Poet."
